Chef's Diner, Spot Where "The Blob" Was Filmed

Unfortunate missed opportunity to make this spot fun with a prop for pictures etc., however fun nostalgic movie stop. Bonus: park across the street, stretch your legs for a few and enjoy Rita's Italian ice with the family while acquainting them with Blob movie history.
